President Trump was accused by the Mainstream Media and Democrats of being racist because he used the word “infested” to describe the deplorable living conditions in Baltimore.

The president called the 7th congressional district a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.” He also called out Rep. Elijah Cummings.
“If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place,” the president tweeted.
Democrats almost immediately seized upon the word “infested.” They said the word is a racist dog whistle. Click here to pre-order Todd’s explosive new book, “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation.”
“Infest has become sort of a trope for Trump,” CNN’s Erin Burnett said. “Infest is a loaded word throughout history.”
However, in 1999 Rep. Cummings used that exact word to describe the drug conditions in his congressional district.
“This morning, I left my community of Baltimore — a drug-infested area where a lot of the drugs we are talking about today have already taken the lives of so many children,” he said. “The same children that I watched 14 or 15 years ago as they grew up, now walking around like zombies.”
“Infest has become sort of a trope for Trump,” she added before pointing to statements about immigrants and inner cities. “Infest is a loaded word throughout history.”
So does that make Rep. Cummings a racist, too?
And for that matter what does it say about a congressman who hasn’t done a single thing to improve the conditions in his district?
